Purge Posted August 1, 2006 Share Posted August 1, 2006 Don't mistake "refugees" who never left the evacuation areas for the specified REFUGES offering food, aid, etc. to evacuees. These are people who also had to leave their things, and valued life over pride or possessions. Not everyone in southern Lebanon is guilty, but everyone in southern Lebanon is in danger of being hurt and killed, and that is the fact of the matter. Calls for evacuation were made, that is the fact of the matter. NOW all these things have been bombed. AFTER the warning. You can cite everything that no longer works as an excuse for people being there, but you are ignoring that they had the chance to leave, and were asked to, BEFORE those things were ruined.And I'm not talking about you pleading ignorance, I am saying nobody in southern Lebanon can claim they weren't asked or warned to leave. What happened next is very sad and unfortunate, but they wouldn't be dead if they had left when they were told to. There is no excuse for not leaving. Hezbollah is firing hundreds of rockets and missiles into Israel every night. The people knew it was coming, and when they were told to evacuate to safer ground, for the most part they did.
